[rest026] Nika Japaridze - Traginew EP


Published June 5, 2006
Topics House, Techno, Pop, Schaffel,


Finally the first international assault
A hall full of schaffel screams
From Georgia to Istanbul
The new ease found
The old gravity discarded
Now you need no Obstgarten anymore

--------------

German:

Endlich der erste internationale Angriff
Eine Halle voller Schaffel schreit
Von Georgien bis nach Istanbul
Die neue Leichtigkeit aufgesucht
die alte Schwere abgelegt
Da braucht man keinen Obstgarten mehr

Subject: Easy bass
No knowledge of the technicalities I'm afraid - this is easy bass swing from a techno slant - pleasant stuff, well constructed.

Schaffel is the german word for shuffle which is music based on a few different time signatures which were made to accommodate the swing rhythm. I never knew Schaffel Techno existed until about a few days ago. Curious, I listened to the EP and found it truly groovy and interesting.

What I noticed about all the tracks is that all of them have a particular groove to them that seems to involve refraining from playing on the 4th beat on some measures for some instruments. In addition, some of the consecutive 1/8 notes are swung. Other than that itâs still standard techno music with a 4/4 kick drum. Iâm not sure whether this is true of all schaffel techno but itâs true for this EP. If youâre a musician that makes techno, you may want to try the technique above. I did and found the results quite interesting.

The above things make this album quite different sounding compared to normal techno. So, try the EP if youâre bored of standard techno.

Favourite tracks:
Cut
There are a few reasons why I liked this track. Firstly, I liked the strummed chords and the bassline. This and the sweet melody at the end seals the deal.

Subject: Low-key, interesting music
I put this recording on a playlist and had it well into the second pass before I realized that it had repeated itself. I view that as a sign of success for more experimental music, fulfilling Eno's classic maxim of "as interesting as it is ignorable". Definitely added to my heavier rotation lists.
